I was getting dressed the other morning and I realized that I never showed you what my wonderful boyfriend gave me for my birthday. The pretty yellow package came all the way across the Atlantic to Barcelona and Paris where I opened it on March 8th. When I opened it out and saw the cotton cat-print bag I burst out hysterical laughing thinking that was the gift on its own. Then I realized there was more and took out this beautiful silk scarf by Olivia Mew. That cheeky witchcat flanked by blood-red flowers and golden birds is so visually witty and diverting that I half wish I could frame it for the wall. For now I'll stick to wearing it, especially paired with neutral colors to let it stand out and in my hair through the summer.
